Courtney Love: 'Kurt Cobain Tried To Kill Himself Three Times'
0
Courtney Love has revealed Kurt Cobain tried to kill himself three times before he succeeded in 1994. In a candid interview with Vanity Fair, Love was asked what she'd do if the Nirvana frontman was to reappear. Responding that she'd "kill him" for the grief he caused those close to him, she went on to admit his suicide wasn't the first time he'd tried to end his life. "He tried to kill himself three times!" she said, adding heroin addict Cobain had also overdosed on several occasions. "He OD'd at least five times. I was the f--king E.M.S (Emergency Medical Services). I was always sticking pins in his balls." She also said she carried a can of Narcan, referring to the drug used to jolt overdosing heroin users back to life. Love also explained the couple had financial problems. "We could never find our money," she said. "We had $135,000 in our bank account. They said that if he would go do Lollapalooza he would make $11 million... Do you think Kurt would have killed himself if he had known he had $54 million?" Thanks for the report to NME.com.

    How much closer is she gonna get to just admitting that she killed him? I'm so sick of this bitch.

    And doing so makes you look like a Cobain sheep where Kurt could never do any wrong.

    Oh but everyone knows Nirvana was such a great band, and wasn't completely overrated and mediocre at all! And Kurt was a godsend, just forget the fact he wasn't in a good band and was probably the least talented of them all! How isn't he a saint!

    There has to be a trial before a RE-trial.....While I personally believe Cobain killed himself, I do agree that there are strange circumstances around his death. And I'm sure everyone can agree that Courtney always knew he was worth more dead than divorced.

    Its sad to see some of the Cobain disciples still mongering that Courtney Love killed him when the end, he couldn't handle his poor, drugged up life, had to kill himself.

    I love how people are so quick to judge Courtney even though they've never experienced drugs, rockstardom, worldwide fame or very often not even serious relationship. Kurt's death was inevitable. Even Grohl admitted he was the kinda person that you knew is not gonna reach his 40's or 50's.

    Is this really necessary, associated press? How many times are you going to add fuel to an already burning fire? The last thing Kurt would want is for his name to be headline news 17 years after the fact. I think he was murdered personally, but my opinion really doesn't matter. Whether it was homicide or suicide, the reality that he's dead will never change.

    Kurt killed himself, nothing new here. He was depressed and suicidal for a long time. He had two uncles kill themselves with guns. Personally, I think he would have killed himself at some point even if Nirvana hadn't become popular.

    All this commotion of the lackluster frontman of an overrated Grunge band. I will never understand getting worked up over something so mediocre. Tsk, tsk.

    Of course she'd kill him. So he couldn't tell anybody about how she did the first time. Seriously I'm tired of hearing about Cobain. I appreciate the things he did for music but he was far from the visionary that everyone touts him as. There were far better musicians with far better music than him. Hell even in his own band sitting right behind him!

    He wouldve killed himself more likely. He wouldve become to mainstream

    most of you guys here are total *****s. read kurt's biography by charles r cross and you'll see that kurt was the kinda guy who'd shoot himself. she didnt do it. get over it.
    KnightBand
    Why some people can't deal with the fact that Kurt was depressed and moody I will never know. Anything to make him look good?

    +1 Read Charles R. Cross's biography of Kurt Cobain. The autopsy said outright, that it couldn't have been anything other than suicide and that it was a very clear case of suicide. This doesn't mean I like Courtney, but people need to stop coming up with conspiracies about his death.

    I can honestly say that I don't believe courtney killed kurt. i'm not suggesting she's a good person because she's not, i just don't think she would have killed kurt. He was worth more money alive.

    The simple fact remains that, even if you believe that all the information given by Tom Grant is correct and tells the whole story, all that tells you is he was murdered by someone. There is no actual proof linking such a murder to Courtney, other then that she'd have a motive. Last time I checked, just having a motive isn't enough for a conviction (thankfully).

    "Do you think Kurt would have killed himself if he had known he had $54 million?" Yes, it was the only sure way to getting rid of you. Ya ol' cow!

    This doesn't even make any sense considering they're not even one of my favorite bands. Responding ignorantly to someone's post without understanding it is just stupid.

    No one of you actually knew the man, and she was ASKED A QUESTION IN AN INTERVIEW, she didn't decide to randomly start talking about how she wanted to kill him, use your heads people.

    All you fools who think Courtney had something to do with Kurt's death.... GROW THE FUCK UP!!!! she has raised a child and done a ****ing good job of it too, she's probably stronger than most you faggots so please, stfu!!!!!
    Hana.Keen
    she killed him emotionally. Heartless bitch. But he loved her when he could have done so much better than her. R.I.P Kurt I love you. My hero x

    regardless, Kurt married her....don't know if she killed him....the idea that he had someone else pull the trigger..emmmm. Courtney, Kurt's gone. stop riding on the coattails of a man that you were only married to for two years. good grief. Frances Bean is a beautiful young woman who seems to have her head on straight. Thank God, she now has control over his estate. Courtney, just go away.....

    And if you think Kurt did kill himself, or if you don't like Nirvana, fine. But there is evidence that points to either A. Murder or B. Assisted suicide. So get over it.

    This immaturity and lack of logic is getting ridiculous... "Let Cobain RIP already!" ^ There is no RIP he's dead, he doesn't know we're talking about him. "People who believe the conspiracies are dumb and belong in a padded room and it's the same as believing a time traveler had him killed" ^No. There are many facts that show that SOMEONE either murdered him or helped him commit suicide. Such as the fact that the shotgun was wiped of fingerprints, or that he couldn't have possibly pulled the trigger at the angle. Calling someone dumb for thinking those facts have some value simply means you yourself aren't intelligent enough to analyze the facts and admit that something is fishy. And framing a murder as suicide, and leaving behind things like a wiped shotgun, isn't that hard to believe and is different from believing in a time traveling murderer. If you think we are simply "fan boys" or belong in a padded room, then I really don't care about your ignorant opinions. Yes, Cobain was a depressed person and could've killed himself and admittedly had attempted it once in his childhood. This doesn't change the fact that he couldn't have shot himself so someone else had to have shot him, whether on Kurt's orders or not. And maybe Love is innocent, maybe she isn't, but she did have an incentive (money) as Kurt was gonna divorce her and quit Nirvana, and someone did take a lie detector test saying Love tried hiring him to kill Kurt. Yes, those test aren't 100% accurate, but to totally dismiss it is just ignorant. Truth is, we don't know exactly what happened, but we do know that SOMEONE wiped fingerprints off of the shotgun, and that enough is enough to at least consider the fact that he might've been murdered. This isn't being a fanboy or ignoring his depression, this is simply analyzing the facts properly. Dismissing this logic as fan boyism or conspiracy theory is simply ignorant...I am over Kurt's death, I know he was depressed, I know he might've killed himself, I know Love might be innocent...none of that changes the fact that fingerprints were wiped, and there are other facts that point to the possibility that he could've been murdered, and if he wasn't murdered, someone helped him commit suicide.

    i`ve NEVER given a rat`s arse about her, because what is dead, should stay dead.
